George Clooney, 53, has finally abandoned his bachelorhood.
Just when we were all starting to believe that the actor would be a bachelor forever, he’s gotten married to the woman that was able to capture his heart since meeting a year ago, Amal Alamuddin, 36.
After George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin exchanged traditional vows, platinum bands and, yes, a lengthy kiss at their 30-minute wedding ceremony on Sept. 27 in Venice, Italy, the newlyweds turned to their family and friends.
And the place went wild.
Cheers and applause filled the gilded hall at Italy’s historic Aman Canal Grande Venice as around 100 guests, many with tears in their eyes, celebrated the much-anticipated union of the Oscar winner and his barrister bride.
The ceremony and three day festivities took place in Venice, Italy. A place Clooney believes is “the most romantic city in the world,” he tells PEOPLE.
“We met in Italy,” he adds. “We have a home there. We knew that was where we wanted to get married.”
While the handsome groom wore an Armani tux, the blushing bride was adorned with a custom Oscar de la Renta French lace gown.
Of his marriage, Clooney tells PEOPLE, ” [it] feels pretty damn great….”We’re looking forward to everything.”
